Jeffrey Inalegwu Ejeh, 27, of Menasha, WI, born June 22, 1989, in Kaduna, Nigeria, passed away Wednesday, February 15, 2017, at his residence. Jeff was taking a break from Fox Valley Technical College where he was studying web development and design, in order to focus full-time on producing music. Jeff learned to produce music while working at the Boys and Girls Club of Appleton, where he spent many years fostering a love for music in all of the children he was able to work with. Recognizing the healing power of music, Jeff was able to support many in their need for self-expression. In his home apartment studio, Jeff worked with and inspired artists of all ages and genres to record and to keep making music, even teaching others how to produce. Surviving are his: parents: David E. and Shauna Ejeh (Mt. Zion, IL); his Great Uncle Retired Captain Edward Sule-Ejeh and Aunts Margaret and Elizabeth (Port Harcourt, Nigeria) and their children who raised him the first half of his life; his biological mother Christina Amina-Yusuf; his Paternal Grandmother Agnes Elaipu Inyankana (Opaha, Nigeria); Sister Nisaa Grant (Mt. Pleasant, MI), Brother David Stephen Ejeh, Sisters Victoria Ejeh and Cyrah Ejeh (Mt. Zion, IL); Uncle John Ejeh (Port Harcourt, Nigeria), Aunt Alilo Ejeh (Makurdi, Nigeria), and Uncle Captain Nicholas Ejeh (Abuja, Nigeria); and many other cousins, uncles, and aunts. His Paternal Grandfather Stephen Ede Ejeh preceded him in death. Visitation will be held at 10 a.m.-12 noon, Saturday, February 25th; followed by a service 12 noon-1 p.m. at Wichmann Funeral Home, 1592 Oneida Street St., Menasha, WI 54952. A repast will follow immediately after the service. Private family interment will be at 2:30 p.m. at Twelve Corners Cemetery in Appleton, WI. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Jeff's honor to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
